Insurance May Save Your Holiday Travel Plans

If you have booked a vacation for the holidays, travel insurance can help minimize the financial burden if something goes wrong.

The holiday season can be the busiest and most crowded travel time of the year, making delays and service disruptions more likely. Trip cancellation coverage can help protect the investment in your true due to severe weather. Trip delay coverage can make those annoying airport delays tolerable by covering meals and hotels when the airlines don’t.

Many travel insurance plans are designed for the more adventurous or sporty vacations. Look for plans that offer coverage for hazardous sports, lost ski days or lost golf rounds. Look for a plan that covers loss or theft of your equipment.

According to airline information technology company, SITA, more than 23 million pieces of luggage are mishandled each year. Travel insurance can provide coverage for each traveler’s baggage and personal belongings, so if something does get lost, replacement items are covered (up to a certain limit).

If you are going to be traveling abroad, one of the most important financial considerations is how to protect you and your family’s health. Without proper coverage, an illness or injury abroad can turn into a financial disaster. Traditional sources of U.S. private health insurance will not meet your needs. Geographical exclusions and provider limitations common to these policies will restrict or eliminate the coverage available to you while you are outside of the U.S.
